Establishing and sustaining a strategic alliance demands
honest communication, careful planning and the alignment
of vision between the respective partners. In truth, such
a company can no longer be viewed as a stand-alone enterprise,
but as a network of organizations that is larger and stronger
than any stand-alone company. The structure of the networked
organization is defined by its interconnectedness that
flows outward from the center in all directions.
This interconnectedness is what enables the enterprise to have
a single voice that speaks and is heard internally by
the all its parts, to listen and receive critical information
from any area within the organization. The greatest of
these network-enabling tools, is the Internet, which provides
communication and delivery of products and services to
the world. The Internet is literally breaking down the
walls around information and the ability to move knowledge
to every point of business contact. In essence, the hardware
and software that comprises an enterprises networking
infrastructure is the communication strength of that organization.
It is the vehicle that allows each member of the network
of organizations to exhibit the facets of the business
in which it excels, and to integrate their efforts working
together to meet customer needs. Additionally, using the
Internet, organization can cultivate personalized business-to-consumer
relationships and business-to-business relationships.
The advances of networking technology have had a significant
impact on a company's productivity. However, the power
of these advances in technology are useless if the network
is not properly designed, and planned. An enterprise without
its network is quite simply, out of business. You don't
have to experiment with technology. Let rpti's Network
Consulting group provide you with the experience you need
today with the technology of tomorrow.
